Planetary Ball Mill Overview

how a planetary ball mill works

Torrey Hills Technologies, LLC is the leading supplier of Planetary Ball Mills to the major process industries. Many products including adhesives, pharmaceuticals, foods, chemicals, electronics, plastics, pigments, and battery compounds are manufactured in our ball mills. Our Planetary Ball Mills are widely used in small batch high efficiency mixing. They are used in research institutions, universities and even industrial production for mixing, homogenization and dispersion up to 0.1Ám. Our customers are in the mining, agriculture, metallurgy, electrical, electronics, materials, chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and nuclear industries.

The planetary ball mill performs mixing by continually revolving the large plate and rotating the containers concurrently. Both the plate revolution (centrifugal) speed and container rotation (planetary) speed are independently adjustable. This unique mixing capability allows the operator to design precise solutions for mixing various systems. To further improve the mixing efficiency, grinding media can be added into the containers. Our machines are built in such a way that the strict weight balancing is not required. Our machines run very quietly with noise = 70 (dB). Ball Mill Jars and Balls are sold separately.
